Florida seen from space


Today’s Video of the Day comes from the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at the state of Florida as seen from space.

The images were captured by the Sentinel-1A satellite and feature a look at Lake Okeechobee, the largest freshwater lake in Florida and the second largest freshwater lake in the contiguous United States.

Lake Okeechobee spans about 730 square miles but is remarkably shallow for its size.
